Got me an interview later today. I spent my evening getting ready for the interview (looking up common interview questions, coming up w/ hypothetical answers, painting my nail). Feel prepared as I'll ever be. Just checked my voice mail and it seems that maybe a temp agency called after seeing my resume. I'll take a look at them, too. Why, after almost a month and a half of scouring with no callbacks am I now hearing from people?

Noveling: I wrote, maybe, a few paragraphs over lunch yesterday. Itty-bitty baby steps. If I manage to secure a job and don't have to spend all my time on useless applications, I will be golden.

Edit: OMG, I just got another phone call from another company I have not applied for (for the reason that people leave that company to come work for my current company, so rats from ships et all). Apparently my resume has shown up on something called recruiters.com . LET IT BE LIKE A TASTY RECRUITER TREAT UNTO THEM, AND MAY THEY FIGHT OVER IT LIKE WILD BEASTS TO PAY ME MONEY.

Edit: Job interview for part-time position went really well. I know I've thought interviews have gone well before, but this one actually did, in that they were, like, "Not that we can say you have the job, but we are already envisioning what we're going to put you to work doing". There is a second interview that will go down in a week or two and then, if all is well, the 'start' is Oct 7th. So. I think I've earned a day off the ol' job hunting to be resumed tomorrow. I am NOT going to assume I have this in the bag and slack like I did the last time I thought I had something lined up.

 Since the start of my job search, I’ve run into a number of businesses which make everyone apply online and require a personality test. They say not to think, but go with the answer that first occurs to you. How unfortunate for me that my brain does not come with an off switch.

 

 

1. You prefer to work alone.

 

Strongly Agree

Agree

Disagree

Strongly Disagree

 

            I prefer TO GET THE JOB DONE. Are you kidding me? The only people who prefer NOT to work alone are slackers who want somebody who prefers to work alone to do their job for them. Or you work for Google.

 

2. People cannot be trusted.

 

Strongly Agree

Agree

Strongly Disagree

 

Why do you think sane people lock their doors at night?

 

3. You get angry when courts let guilty criminals go free.

 

Strongly Agree

Strongly Disagree

 

Apparently, Gotham P.D. is trying to narrow their search for the Batman. I’d like to point out to the good service members of Gotham how unlikely it is that caped crusaders will apply for a job at Boarders.
 

 

So far, my job search has resulted in:

One slice of cake

One piece of chocolate (from See’s Candy)

Several lipstick samples.
